Designer Frank Roop used an oversize tufted bench to add an “unexpected or dramatic” element to the entryway of this Boston-area colonial home. Oh how I will love the day I have a house with a staircase like this one.
I love how they made the very formal chairs fun by the way they upholstered them; the black stone baseboards against the white walls, the the sweeping victorian staircase the checkered marble floor. Foyer without the staircase facing the front door.
Interior Design - Chapter 5 - American Greek revival, American Empire - Entrance Hall/ Stair Hall, possibly inspired by Charles Shrewsbury House - Madison, Indiana. I love the introduction a sweeping staircase gives an entrance. This is a work of art.
